The Current Genre for Issue # 35 (to be released November 1, 2011) is

Dark Comedy

Dark Comedy

Sometimes humor is the only way to deal with pain. Poke fun at Death – he hates that. Give the Gods hell. It’s fun to be morbid, it’s a relief to satirize. Show your acerbic best, and do it with a spring in your step. Give your sense of humor teeth – and let them bite something in the ass.

Submissions for Issue 35 will be accepted until 11:59 pm US EST on September 30.

The current genre is Sidekicks and Minions!

We know them as mistreated, unappreciated. Used as cannon fodder, or subjects of experiments, or to draw fire away from heroes & heroines. But how many Dr. Frankensteins would have failed without their Igors? Would Xena be Xena without Gabrielle? Show us why sidekicks & minions are crucial to the stories of heroes & villains – or deserving of their own tales.

Submissions for Issue 32 will be accepted until 11:59 pm US EST on June 31.

(Note: The current genre is also always listed in the sticky post on this community.)




The 2nd Science In My Fiction contest is now open for submissions!

Remember: All submissions must be set off Earth!
